Playing cards with Anita

I am sure that you are familiar with a sweet gal in France, Anita, and her genuinely lovely comments!
Well, today is her birthday!
My friend Michele of I Card Everyone and I are playing cards together and CASE-ing Anita over at the Stamplorations blog!  Anita is the Guest Designer for the month :)
Here are Anita's beauties...

And here is my card that I created to celebrate Anita and her special day!
As you can see, Anita's cards are always perfect and CAS!

I went in a different direction with mine.
I focused on her hearts inside the circular shapes and her colours.  I used a lonely and old but NBUS Stampin' Up stamp from an unknown set.  She was begging to get inked up for this event!
I first stamped in SU Smoky Slate and made masks for the 5 heart encased florals.  When masked, I sponged distress inks over the panel, blending as best as I could.
The inked sentiments are from PTI Big Hugs as well as the Hugs die cut.
The sunshine die cut is from SSS. 

I am wishing Anita a most beautiful day filled with everything wonderful!
Bonne Fete ma Belle!
